Procedural Control Mechanisms – Strike Out, Deposits, Stays and Costs – 11 KBW

Posted November 14th, 2011 in costs, deposits, employment tribunals, news, stay of proceedings, striking out by sally

“The Employment Tribunal system is under attack! It is regularly exposed to criticism as being inefficient, costing those who participate in it too much money and amounting to a disproportionate burden on business. Such criticism has been made all the more fiercely of late both because of the economic climate and also because the Government has been reviewing the Employment Tribunal system with the express aim of reducing the burden placed on business by it.”

Regina v F(S) – WLR daily

Posted July 25th, 2011 in abuse of process, appeals, delay, law reports, stay of proceedings by tracey

Regina v F(S) [2011] EWCA Crim 1844;  [2011] WLR (D)  242

“An application to stay criminal proceedings for abuse of process on grounds of delay and a submission of ‘no case to answer’ were two distinct matters which had to receive distinct and separate consideration. An application to stay for abuse of process on the grounds of delay could not succeed unless, exceptionally, a fair trial was no longer possible owing to prejudice to the defendant caused by the delay which could not fairly be addressed in the normal trial process, whereas on a submission of ‘no case’ the question was whether the evidence, viewed overall, was such that the jury could properly convict.”

“Where unrelated actions in different member states of the European Union subsequently became related by virtue of the amendment of the earlier action to include an issue related to the later action, the court seised of the later action had a discretion to stay that action on the grounds that it was no longer the court first seised for the purposes of article 28(1) of Council Regulation (EC) No 44/2001 on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters (‘the Judgments Regulation’).”
